Ozark returned to Netflix last week with the first half of the highly anticipated fourth and final season. The show quickly climbed to the top of Tunefind’s popular music chart, claiming the top spot with a track from Killer Mike.
At the end of the third episode, Marty, Wendy, and Charlotte have dinner with Javi. After taking a call, Javi returns to the table as ‘Untitled’ begins. Javi makes a toast and the lyrics begin. ‘Untitled’ continues through the end credits.
“‘Untitled’ by Killer is one of the songs I have been waiting to use as an end credit in Ozark for a while,” shared Ozark music supervisor Gabe Hilfer. “While we have used some Run the Jewels songs previously, and this song pre-dates that group, but consists of the same producer, El-P, MC, and Killer Mike. The raw energy of the song is a perfect compliment to the end of the episode in which it is featured.”
‘Untitled’ was released on the 2012 album R.A.P. Music. An instrumental album was released a few months later. Killer Mike has been releasing singles and EPs since 2002. His debut album was released in 2003 and his latest in 2015.
Killer Mike is the stage name for Michael Santiago Render. Render was born and raised near Atlanta, Georgia. He briefly attended college where he met producers The Beat Bullies and eventually Big Boi from Outkast. He made his debut on Outkast’s 2000 LP Stankonia on the track ‘Snappin’ & Trappin” and later appeared on the Grammy-winning single ‘The Whole World’ from Outkast’s greatest hits album, Big Boi and Dre Present… Outkast (2001). Killer Mike is the founder of Grind Time Official Records, launching DMC and Fontana Distribution.
In 2003, Killer Mike released his debut solo album, Monster. The lead single ‘Akshon (Yeah!)’ features Outkast on guest vocals. In 2006, Killer Mike released the first volume of his mixtape series I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind, followed by the second volume in 2008. The third volume was released another two years later.
Killer Mike met rapper/producer El-P in 2011, who produced Mike’s 2012 album R.A.P. Music. El-P appeared as a guest vocalist on a track for R.A.P. Music and Killer Mike guested on El-P’s album Cancer 4 Cure the same year. The two decided to tour together and record as Run the Jewels. They have released multiple albums together.
